5/24/11. Steven Siegel. Professor Steven Siegel, who teaches Hospitality and Tourism Management at Niagara University, had spoken with us earlier (3/14/11) about the impact of casino gambling on the economy of Western NY, especially hotels, restaurants, bars, and entertainment venues. (See http://NoCasinoErie.org/SiegelOnCasinoEconomicEffect2011.pdf )
Professor Siegel focuses in this program on the way the casino stacks the odds against the customer, setting machines so that the more customers gamble, the more they loseâat the same time providing wins sufficient to encourage customers to keep gambling as long as possible.
